They call it the land of Suburbia,
Where I can live the rest of my days without worry.
There is no
No thought of
No one thinks,
Because "We have people for that".
As others walk by the perfectly lined stores,
Because there is something to worry about
another child will be beaten
because those bruises didn't just appear.
That because of my skin, I have gained "privileged"
as my last name
another person will be taken advantage of
Because of their gender.
about the biggest and the smallest things
if we don't have devices to tell us how to think
or burgers to increase our waistlines
We would panic
Because we would finally be able to think.
And I worry
I am becoming like them.
